India has over 50,000 plastics processors consisting of micro, small and medium enterprises. These companies comprise around 1,53,500 plastics processing machines for a wide array of applications.

Backed by 28 plants and manufacturing facilities, Supreme Industries processes more than 5,00,000 metric tons of plastic polymer each year. At the exhibit, the company displayed its varied protective packaging division (PPD) portfolio including Protec, Dura, and INSU (for industrial application); and FUNJOY and FITspree (for consumer application).

About the product INSUsound-PE, Manish Naik, general manager - international sales PPD, Supreme said, “It is 100% recyclable and green product. It is lightweight and up to half the weight and better than any other conventional product.”

“We deliver the FITspree and FUNJOY products’ range to Decathlon, one of the largest sporting goods retailers. One of its products, a yoga mat that is made with eco-friendly EVA, offers good grip and is slip-free.” added Vishal Deshpande, manager - international sales PPD.

Headquartered in Vapi, Kapsun is a leading manufacturer of injection moulding machines in Ahmedabad. The company exhibited its injection moulding machine model - 125 T, which offers high tensile strength and enables quick mould changing.

After a good response at Interpack 2023, Dhwani Polyprints also exhibited at PlexConnect. The company’s patent technology, SoundSeal, offers four levels of security in their bags. This ensures that any type of bag tampering is visually evident.

Raj Mehta, BDM - marketing, Dhwani Polyprints said, “Plastic plays a pivotal role in packaging applications. It is lightweight and has a high product to package ratio. At Dhwani, we manufacture bags from 100% regrind and are committed to deliver innovation with its vision for sustainability.”

A leading flexible packaging player, Shako Flexipack, displayed sustainable packaging solutions - multi-layer pouches - at its stall. “These pouches are stand-alone with window and zipper customisations. Of them, kraft paper is a more sustainable choice,” said Manish Prasad, development executive, Shako Flexipack.

The Plexconcil acts as a bridge between the industry and the government. It was established by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Department of Commerce, Government of India on 15 July 1955, as a non-profit organisation. The PlexConnect 2023 show along with technical seminars and reverse buyer-seller meets was organised by Plexconcil.
